Xiang Xing lay on the ground as he tried his best to stay conscious and breathe, his eyes gazing at the open sky.
Perhaps it would not be long before his eyes closed and his breath ceased forever.
The surrounding vegetation began to burn.
Flames surrounded him.
He was not afraid of fire.
He had never been afraid of it since he was young.
The most serious injury he suffered previously was when the flesh around his entire arm and half of his chest disappeared, revealing those crimson bones.
In the end, he survived.
Logically speaking, he probably possessed a special talent that made him different from ordinary people.
However, the strange illness that flared up from time to time caused him to constantly teeter on the edge of life and death.
In terms of cultivation, he was not much stronger than an ordinary heaven’s blessed.
Within the Xiang family, he was not considered particularly outstanding.
As he felt his flesh burn, and his bones becoming hotter and hotter, his consciousness was on the verge of collapse due to the immense pain and heat.
Xiang Xing tried his best to breathe and keep his eyes open.
He felt that, before long, his eyes would be completely burned away.
Most of his flesh had burnt away, leaving behind only his crimson bones.

His current situation was both fortunate and unfortunate.
Despite his flesh having burnt away, his consciousness was still intact.
He had not collapsed, and he continued to bear the immense pain.
He heard a woman’s voice.
Then, a beautiful figure appeared before Xiang Xing’s eyes, accompanied by a faint scent.
It seemed to be the scent that lingered on someone who often worked with spiritual herbs and refined pills.
He was not unfamiliar with this scent.
After all, in order to treat the strange illness in his body, he had interacted with many alchemists.
The flames around him were extinguished.
“Are you human?”
Xiang Xing cried inwardly, ‘Do I not look like a human anymore?’
As Chu Yun spoke, she took out a small bottle and sprinkled the medicinal liquid that she had refined over Xiang Xing’s body.
As the medicinal liquid sprinkled over his body, it made sizzling sounds, like water sprinkled on red-hot iron.
Chu Yun stretched out her finger and tapped Xiang Xing’s bones.
“Oh my, it’s so hot.”
“Hey, can you speak?”
Xiang Xing opened his mouth, but was unable to speak.
However, as the medicinal liquid rained down on his body, he felt a little better, and his injuries recovered slightly.
However, she was still unable to save him.
Xiang Xing did not harbor any wild hopes.
This alchemist was just a little girl, not much older than him.
How could she have the ability to save him?
Chu Yun held a small knife in her hand.
She used it to tap Xiang Xing’s exposed bones, making crisp sounds.
Her eyes turned brighter and brighter.
She took out a few more pills, crushed them, and sprinkled them over Xiang Xing’s body, safeguarding his life.
Xiang Xing saw her take out a bag.
It was clear that she was going to put him in it.
He could not help but feel sad.
“I found a treasure.”
Chu Yun was very happy.
She had gained a lot from this trip.
She had also found such a strange person.
It should be a person, right?
She used the bag to put Xiang Xing in.
She then carried the bag and returned to the Chu family’s territory.
Xiang Xing felt the cool air swirling about in the bag.
The pain he felt was alleviated, and his injuries were also under control to a certain extent.
Moreover, the symptoms of his strange illness seemed to be receding.
Had he survived again?
Xiang Xing did not know whether he should be happy or sad, especially given the fact that he did not know what would happen to him next.
What would this girl do to him?
Would she treat him as a monster and study him?
In the past, in order to treat the strange illness, he had also been studied by others.
He had almost been dissected by someone.
Fortunately, he had escaped quickly!
Thinking back to that scene from before, Xiang Xing could not help but shiver.
Could it be that the same thing would happen to him again?
However, given his current situation, there was no way for him to escape!
“Thirteenth Brother, Thirteenth Brother! I’ve picked up a treasure.
I don’t know if he can be considered a human being, though.”
The woman’s joyful voice rang in his ears, and then Xiang Xing felt himself being poured out of the bag.
He fell to the ground.
He shook his head and looked up.
A handsome man was lazily sitting on a reclining chair, looking over at him.
Chu Xuan saw Chu Yun running into the courtyard excitedly with a bag.
He was a little surprised.
His curiosity was piqued when he saw a strange man come out of her bag.
“Thirteenth Brother, look.
His bones are crimson, like red-hot iron.
And they’re very hot.”
Chu Yun flicked Xiang Xing’s exposed bones and asked expectantly, “Thirteenth Brother, do you think he’s a human?”
Chu Pingfan came over curiously.
The Heavenly Spirit Cat also came over.
The Sky-shaking Golden Roc also came over.
Then, Su Xian’er and the other two also came over.
Chu Yun blinked her eyes.
Since when were there three more people in the courtyard?
“Thirteenth Brother, who are they?”
“Su Xian’er, my maidservant.
Ding Yue, Wang Luo, my disciples.”
Chu Xuan introduced them.
“This is your martial aunt.”
“Greetings, martial aunt!”
Ding Yue and Wang Luo hurriedly bowed.
Although this martial aunt’s strength was not that great, and she was much weaker than them, she was Master’s younger sister!
Chu Yun blinked her eyes and directed her attention away from Xiang Xing, who was just laying there on the ground.
“Thirteenth Brother, you’ve already taken in disciples?”
Chu Xuan walked over, patted her head, and said with a smile, “It’s normal to take in disciples.”
“Greetings, Sister Yun,” Su Xian’er said with a smile.
Chu Yun looked at Su Xian’er, who was dressed as a servant, and muttered, “You look a little familiar.”
After they got to know each other, everyone stared at Xiang Xing.
All of them had surprised looks on their faces.
They stretched out their hands and tapped his bare bones.
The bones were actually crimson, and very hot.
Ding Yue grabbed a handful of grass and placed it on the bones.
The grass started to burn.
“What is going on? It’s so unique.
The bones can actually start a fire!”
“Can he breathe fire?” Wang Luo asked curiously.
Xiang Xing had a sorrowful look on his face.
He was surrounded by gawking people again.
“Thirteenth Brother, is he human?”
Chu Yun said, “If he is human, let’s save him.”
Chu Xuan stared at Xiang Xing.
The more he looked at him, the more satisfied he became.
An artifact-refining genius had finally come knocking.
Another talented disciple was his for the taking.
“He is human.” Chu Xuan nodded.
“Sir, then what is going on with his situation? Is he cultivating some sort of special technique?” Su Xian’er asked curiously.
Everyone looked at Chu Xuan, waiting expectantly for the answer.
Xiang Xing was the same.
“It’s not a cultivation technique.”
Chu Xuan shook his head and said, “This is a special physique, and also a very powerful type of innate talent.”
Xiang Xing’s lips twitched.
He wanted to say something, but could not.
Seeing this, Chu Yun took out a spiritual medicine with a slight expression of unwillingness.
This was something she had refined with great difficulty.
She crushed it and sprinkled it over Xiang Xing’s mouth.
After some time, Xiang Xing felt that he could speak.
He was so excited that he was about to cry.
“Thank you for saving my life, Miss!”
He looked at Chu Xuan again, with anticipation, and then said nervously, “Senior, I really have a special physique and innate talent.
Why doesn’t it feel that way? Instead, it tortures me incessantyl!”
“Some special talents, because they are rare and unique, cannot be fully manifested without the corresponding cultivation technique or activation method.
Instead, they will manifest to the common cultivator as trash.”
Chu Xuan sat back in his chair and said, “You were born with fiery bones, a very special physique.”
